#88: Asking for Support

#88: Asking for Support

October 20, 2021

A lot of people (wrongly) believe that asking for help means that you've somehow failed... Like if you can't do everything on your own then you're somehow not good enough. But the truth is, you don't have to do everything yourself. It is strong and brave and worthwhile to ask people to support you.

In this episode, will Mary talks about...

  • how asking for help creates opportunities for both you and others

  • why asking for help strengthens relationships

  • mindset shifts to make that will help you feel more empowered

Remember: A strong independent woman is not someone who never asks for help. Strong people are those who are brave enough to know that just because they can do it themselves doesn't mean they should.

#81: How to Follow Your Heart

#81: How to Follow Your Heart

September 1, 2021

At our previous retreat, there was 1 retreat sister who couldn't figure out what she wanted when it came to her relationship. Without sharing details, she was at a crossroad in her life. Usually in this situation, everyone says "follow your heart! do what makes you happy!" But nobody tells you exactly HOW to do that. Like what is the difference between a gut instinct and irrational fear? How do you know when you're listening to your own heart when you've been listening to your parents, your partner, your friends for so long? How is it that some people are so in touch with their heart and soul and higher selves and others are so disconnected and struggle to make decisions, let alone be confident in them?

You will learn...

  • Exactly what's getting in the way of you following your heart
  • 3 questions to ask yourself when you're at a crossroad in life
  • The # 1 thing you MUST do if you want to reconnect to yourself

Remember: Following your heart is not equivalent to making perfect decisions all the time. It's about what opportunities and adventures and lessons can come from your heart-centered decisions.

#79: Dealing with Overwhelm via Self-Talk

#79: Dealing with Overwhelm via Self-Talk

August 18, 2021

If you Google this topic, you'll find plenty of articles telling you how to check more things off your to-do list or organizing your planner for more productivity, and all types of advice which sure, could be helpful. BUT, they don't address the mindset behind overwhelm and the fact that your long to-do list is not necessarily the source of your overwhelm. Overwhelm is a MINDSET. And if you're stuck in that mindset for too long, then it can be detrimental to your mental health and well-being. In this episode, Mary shares self-talk tools for getting through overwhelm. These are things you can say to yourself when you catch yourself getting overwhelmed. You will learn...

  • What a mindset of overwhelm is

  • The difference between thoughts and feelings (and how to use your thoughts to manage your feelings)

  • Ways to deal with overwhelm from a mindset perspective

Remember: a long to-do list can trigger a mindset of overwhelm, but ultimately, you have the power to get out of that mindset by practicing better self-talk.
